About

Outstanding Mid-Century Modern hinged box veneered in fine Diorite, Spain, 1950s. This exquisite vintage 1950s rectangular box is all constructed with orbicular diorite and features a brass hinge. Diorite is a very rare igneous rock mineral in black, grey and white tones.

This trinket box shows beautiful orbicular bandings and it is in excellent condition. It will be the perfect gift for a special day. Lovely placed over a vanity table or nightstand to leave men's jewelry or to use as vide-poche. Provenance: Private collection from a jewelry shop. Measures: 14.9 cm W x 9.6 cm D x 3 cm H.
